Do you have a subscription program for the X9 machine

Asked by: Anthony
The X9 machines are temporarily unavailable for subscription. Due to popular demand, we have very limited quantities remaining and will receive more in September for all colors (chrome, red, & black). You can only purchase the X9 black model at full price at this time. http://www.illy.com/en-us/shop/machines/espresso-machines/francis-francis-x9/coffee-machines-X9-iperespresso-us-P.html?dwvar_coffee-machines-X9-iperespresso-us-P_color=black&cgid

Two different types of pods for Illy coffee.  Which one does this use? My Francis has broken.I liked that it used the green plastic pods and steamed milk.....It also could handle a mug under it's dispenser rather than a little cup. Compare to this one.

Asked by: sarah
Our X9 machine is an espresso machine only that brews a regular shot of espresso as well as a longer shot. The control buttons allow you to program and select 2 in-cup volumes. This machine does not brew iper coffee capsules for drip coffee. You may want to consider the Y5 Milk Espresso and Coffee which brews both espresso and coffee capsules, and also has an automatic milk frother. Please see the link below and contact Customer Care at 877-455-9347 for additional information: https://www.illy.com/en-us/shop/machines/multi-beverage-machines/francis-francis-y5-milk-black/60088.html
